    While the theme of incestuous love is teased at in John Webster s The Dulcess of Malfi, the controversial Tis Pity She s a Whore smacks the Jacobean Theater audience with a brother sister love While the play outwardly condemns the abhorrent taboo with the presence of church leaders to provide moral and ethical authority figures, Ford challenges the audience his audience with his juxtaposition of this otherwise romantic love between Giovanni and Annabella with the normal yet abhorrent relationships among Hippolita and the men in her lives, including her legal relationship with her husband Richardetto It would seem as if that the accepted normal love relationship in the tragedy are even monstrous than the condemned love affair among the siblings And probably with the intent of critiquing the Church as well, Ford ends his tragedy not with the just sermon from a friar but with a greedy Cardinal demanding that he collects all the jewels of the numerous deceased for the Church So it seems that the only triumphant character in the end is the uptight and unforgiving Church figures.Ford pushes a very modern idea how one can be a helpless tragic character if he does not conform with the ideals of the society or of any institution For the first scene of the play, Giovanni is repentant and is aware of his s...

    This play is basically an early modern slasher Twisted and fantastic.

    This is one of the most disturbing plays from an era of disturbing plays The title is not accurate She isn t, you know, but her lust for her brother is beyond control and so is his for her Around the edges of the paly is the suggestion that everything would be fine if people would just leave them alone Unfortunately, readers are so focused on the incestous theme and the great set piece at the end of the story, that few notice that the play is very much about pr...

    I have such mixed feelings about this play I need to see it live to see if my hatred for Giovanni is justified and if some of the decisions feel as forced.

    This was actually one of the easier plays to read fast paced, with measured dialogues, and lots of character drama It was Game of Thrones lite in all in incestual, gory details I quite enjoyed the sheer theatricality of it all Specially ...

    I suppose this is cheating as I went to see this last night at The Globe s indoor theatre having read it many years ago , but since the production was very text focussed and after all it is drama, I feel I can justify it Published in 1633, the play is a direct, often humorous and finally bloody tragedy Annabel is an eligible virgin of marriageable age who has many suitors vying for her hand a well connected soldier, and eligible bachelor and a young blustering fool Unfortunately when her brother, Giovanni, declares his passionate love for her and she reciprocates, the relationship becomes incestuous, she becomes pregnant and the stage is set for disaster.Ford highlights the hypocrisy of Italian society through the characters of the self absorbed lovers and the cardinal who is happy to both protect a murderer and assimilate the dead families fortunes It is impossible not to look at the play through modern eyes and see that all the women are incarnations of lust in some form or other and inevitably all die grisly deaths However, the men come out of it no bett...

    Enjoyed it enjoyed it quite a bit on second reading In fact, I m no longer willing to sign on to any of the negative remarks below Maybe it helped to know in advance that the incest theme was so prominent, so I could stop saying wait, what, really and pay attention to everything else going on I feel a little bit about writing only a short retraction of a long negative review, but John Ford won t be too offended I reckon Tis Pity She s a Whore is kind of wonderful, and kind of appalling, for its window into the strange world of 380 years ago, a world every bit as strange as our own.I ve read this with an organized reading group, and I m sure I ll have a better understanding of it once the conversation kicks off But it will be a tough sell to get me to think of this as a good play It is, first of all, ridiculously lurid it s all about enthusiastic incest, it has counts on fingers no less than five mostly gruesome on stage deaths and at one point has a character running around brandishing another character s recently removed heart What thi...
